Wrocław Market Square - From Rynek, Poland
Wroclaw Market Square, or Rynek as it is known locally, is the main square of Wroclaw, Poland. It is the tenth-largest market square in Europe and a must-visit destination when in the city. With its unique mix of necropoleis, Gothic churches, and sparkling fountains, Wroclaw Market Square is a place of beauty and wonder. Buildings such as the spire-topped Town Hall and the church of St Mary Magdalene make it insatiably interesting. In the market square stands Old Town Hall, whose remarkable construction was first documented in the 14th century. Over the centuries the building has been destroyed in numerous wars and fires and reconstructed, but still retains its old-world charm. Don't forget to snap a photo from the top of Town Hall tower for an amazing panoramic view of the entire square. The weekly market held on the square is also an attraction for locals and visitors alike with handmade items and traditional Polish food. Open all year round, Wroclaw Market Square is a great place to wander, shop, eat and take in the local atmosphere.
